The point of this journal, blog, diary (whichever you like) is for me to be able to share my enthusiasm, frustration, delight, and addiction with yarn. I say yarn in general because I would like to learn to knit and I'm not going to limit myself by saying this will only be about crochet. It probably won't just be about yarn as I'm starting down the road of learning jewelry making as well. But for now, yarn suffices. I hope that you'll join me on this journey! It's going to be a blast!
I just want to bring this back while we’re pretending girls in nerd culture don’t have it bad
NATALIE PORTMAN was accused of being a “fake nerd girl” THIS IS HOW FAR THE IGNORANCE GOES IT GOES THIS FAR

Any person with any common sense knows that women can do whatever they want to do. And strong women do just that.
Unfortunately a lot of people don’t have common sense. Especially the men who pull the fake nerd girl rhetoric. It is ridiculously frustrating to be told by men that you can’t possibly love what you love because you’re a woman. I run into it in comic book shops, video games stores, online games, by sheer virtue of my gender I have to be faking my interest. And unfortunately this doesn’t just extend to nerd/geek culture but is pervasive to music, television, and film. And while I’m fulling willing to accept that it isn’t every man in those arenas, I encounter it enough that I’m passionate about it.
Ever feel like the finish line for completing graduate school is impossible to see? Does the thought of one more semester feel overwhelming? You are not alone! Graduate students of today face more challenges than ever. This seminar, led by Dr. Andy Case-Simonson, helps you assess the components of burnout, learn and develop coping skills tailored to graduate school responsibilities, and build a balanced lifestyle supporting successful completion of your degree.
Andy Case-Simonson, Counseling Psychologist, asks, “How often do you wish for more hours in the day, increased efficency in your work style, reduced feelings of being overwhelmed, and perfection in your finished papers, projects, research and test preparations?” Tame these 2 shrews by (1)assessing “good” vs. “bad” perfectionism and procrastination, (2) understanding your work approach and style, (3) uncovering expectations that are vulnerable to perfectionistic tendencies and procrastination, and (4)meeting personal and professional needs that can help prevent chronic perfectionism and procrastination.
